For my fourth card in my holiday series I used a digi from Koala T Crafts.  KTC has lots of cute digis designed by Jen!  I decided to make a shaker card out of the snowglobe and use the poinsettia image inside my globe.

I colored the image with my Copic markers.  Here are the colors I used.
  • Poinsettias: R24, 27, 39, 89
  • Poinsettia centers: Y17 & E33
  • Base: E31, 33, 35, 57
  • Sign: C7, 5, 3, 00

Holiday Series 2017 Project 3 | 5 Tags & 4 Christmas cards

I wanted to illustrate how you can take one image and make several projects.  The poinsettia stamp I used is the Simon Says Stamp set Poinsettia.  I colored it in several ways; Copic, PrismaColor and Zig Clean Color.  I also embossed some and just stamped others.  Then I used sentiments from Strawberry Jude Stamps Christmas Tags set and Honey Bee Merry and Joy set.  And the Rejoice die from Simon Says Stamp.

In making a series of projects like this I do them in an assembly line fashion.  First I stamped/embossed all the poinsettias and colored them and then cut them out on my Brother Scan N Cut.  Then I found the frames in Cricut Design Space and cut two froms from the white washed wood paper.  I used the negative and positive of these frames to create four cards.  Next I die cut all the tags then embossed each and used the spray stain.  Final step I attached the poinsettias.

I encourage you to find one image that you can make into several projects!
